Is 3.18.6 pre-compiled?

I downloaded and ran it as ./ I also downloaded cmake-3.18.6-Linux-x86_64.tar.gz and upacked it. Both gave me a directory that included bin/, doc/, man/ and share/ but there was no Readme.txt, no and no CMakeLists.txt.

So, does this directory tree include pre-compiled files? Where are the instructions for this? I do not want to leave the directory under ~/Downloads.

I’m sure that contains pre-built binaries, so I would be very surprised if cmake-3.18.5-Linux-x86_64.tar.gz didn’t. However, I’m replying on my phone and can’t check now.

Yes, the downloads with a platform in the name, here Linux contain pre-compiled binaries. For the source code, you want the cmake-3.18.5.tar.gz (or .zip for Windows newlines) file.
